Illegally demanding limits to the FBI’s sham investigation and adding to his obstruction of Justice charges to appoint another corrupt crony to the U.S. Supreme Court to keep his ass out of jail and screw the majority of Americans that don’t support him isn’t going to end well for Trump or the GOP:

Trump’s Absurd New Conspiracy Theory: Sexual Assault Survivors Protesting Kavanaugh Are ‘Paid Professionals’ Working for Soros article from Alternet. –
Creating more conspiracy theories to distract from his incompetence isn’t going to work out well for Trump or his enablers:
“In the run-up to the confirmation vote for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, protestors have swarmed the Senate offices, resulting in hundreds of arrests. In one incident yesterday, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) was cornered by sexual assault survivors, who pursued him as he stepped into an elevator, shooing them with his hands and telling them to “grow up!”
As if the treatment of the protestors could be any less dignified, President Donald Trump attacked them on Friday with a bizarre conspiracy theory:
The very rude elevator screamers are paid professionals only looking to make Senators look bad. Don’t fall for it! Also, look at all of the professionally made identical signs. Paid for by Soros and others. These are not signs made in the basement from love! #Troublemakers
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 5, 2018
Trump is claiming, with zero evidence, that because the protests had some professional organization, like mass-produced signs, the protestors are “paid professionals” in the employ of George Soros, the Hungarian-born Jewish billionaire philanthropist and Holocaust survivor who sits at the core of many right-wing conspiracy theories…”

A financial history of Donald Trump: From daddy’s little boy, to Putin’s best partner article from The Daily Kos. –
A closer look at how the illegitimate fraud in the White House earned his money and some of his criminal and treasonous acts:
“In 2016, the Financial Times ran a series of “deep reports” in which they detailed much of Donald Trump’s post-2000 financial activity, some of which was utilized for a previous Daily Kos article. In 2017, Vanity Fair ran several articles on Trump and his relationship with his father, while CNN reported on Trump’s failed Taj Mahal Casino. Most recently, the New York Times published the results of a massive forensic accounting investigation into the Trump family business. With the addition of court documents from the U.S. Treasury, a leaked partial return of Trump’s 1995 taxes, and the cooperating agreement of Paul Manafort, it may be possible for the first time to paint a true picture of Donald Trump’s financial history.
While this article uses dates, names, and numbers where possible, there is also a fair amount of speculation—not as much in Trump’s distant past, as in his recent past. As in just how did Donald Trump make money from 2001 to 2016? This article extrapolates from both the behaviors Trump learned under the tutelage of his father, from family attorney Roy Cohn, and from descriptions of actions by Manafort that appeared on charges from the special counsel’s office in describing how Trump has likely kept up the appearance of wealth over that period.
TRUMP BEFORE 2001: DADDY’S LITTLE FAILURE
The best way to describe Donald Trump’s activities before 2001 is that he was a playboy. He liked to spend money, liked to be in the gossip columns, liked to be seen spending outlandish amounts, liked to be photographed in the company of beautiful women, like to brag about the deals he was making … and almost never came out on top. But he didn’t have to. Because all through his life, right into his 40s and 50s, Trump was actually living on a fat stream of money pouring in from his father. If he made extravagant deals that resulted in spectacular failures, most of them barely touched Trump. He went back to his flashy lifestyle, securely living on daddy’s cash…”

Trump Now Selling Bullshit Lie That Kavanaugh Allegations Are Democratic ‘Hoax’ article from Splinter News. –
Trump is making up more bull shit to deflect from the GOP’s immoral – and probably illegal – confirmation of his get out of jail free ‘Justice’ nominee:
“Speaking with reporters on the White House lawn on Monday, President Donald Trump addressed the continuing fallout from Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation fight, painting the multiple credible allegations of sexual assault leveled against Kavanaugh as nothing more than a plot by Democrats to derail the nomination.
Addressing rumors of a possible (if extraordinarily unlikely) impeachment effort against Kavanaugh, Trump described the nominee as “a brilliant jurist, a man that did nothing wrong, a man that was caught up in a hoax that was set up by the Democrats using the Democrats’ lawyers.”
“I have been hearing that now they are thinking of impeaching a brilliant jurist and a man who did nothing wrong … and I think it is an insult to the American public,” @POTUS says https://t.co/KiG73zuS7J pic.twitter.com/Y6t3bgpixI

Trump goes full conspiracy theory: Kavanaugh ‘did nothing wrong,’ was ‘caught up in a hoax’ article from The Daily Kos. –
More on our delusional Conspiracy theorist’s desperate claims to save the second piece of shit that he just got confirmed to the highest court in the land to the detriment of every American:
“Donald Trump has completed his journey from pretending he was open to believing sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh all the way to full-on conspiracy theory in defense of Kavanaugh.
“Now they’re thinking about impeaching a brilliant jurist, a man that did nothing wrong, a man that was caught up in a hoax that was set up by the Democrats,” Trump told reporters. […] “It was all made up, it was fabricated, and it’s a disgrace,” Trump concluded. “And I think it’s really gonna show you something come November 6th.”
“A man that did nothing wrong” … who lied under oath not just about his own past drinking habits but about hist past work in the George W. Bush White House and areas of policy he would handle as an appeals court judge or Supreme Court justice.
“Caught up in a hoax that was set up by the Democrats” … who apparently had somehow foreseen the need to have Ford tell her therapists, husband, and several friends about having been assaulted by Kavanaugh dating back before Donald Trump began running for president, let alone nominated Kavanaugh…”

Pulitzer-winning reporter Greg Miller on Trump and Russia: We’ve all seen the smoking gun article from Salon. –
Despite the Kavanaugh fiasco and other distractions orchestrated by the most corrupt president* in U.S. history, Trump’s Russia scandal is still taking center stage and taking his failed presidency down the drain:
“It might be the ultimate journalistic cliché to announce that Donald Trump’s presidency is not normal. Indeed, it’s just as likely that this is what normal looks like now, and that the naked power politics of Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation — embraced by Republicans for many reasons, but most of all as a smackdown to feminists and liberals and everyone else perceived as preachy and condescending and threatening to the old order — is a sign of the times.
To use another overused phrase of the moment, conservatives will surely reap the whirlwind for this fateful decision, to an extent they cannot now imagine. They don’t appear to care. Meanwhile, the Republican Party as we once knew it — the party of middle American businessmen, upstanding New England ladies and the Presbyterian Church — has been fully digested by the Trumpian virus. Susan Collins, Ben Sasse and Jeff Flake make polite, mournful noises about this, but most Republicans appear to be delighted. All of that is the new normal too.
Greg Miller’s painstakingly researched new book, “The Apprentice: Trump, Russia and the Subversion of American Democracy,” is an attempt to explain how we arrived at this new normal, and beneath the surface a lament for the old one. Numerous other books have been written about the history-shaping 2016 presidential election and Trump’s mysterious relationship to the Russian oligarchy and Vladimir Putin. Miller, who is a national security correspondent for the Washington Post, does not go nearly so far as some reporters in alleging conspiracy or — yes! — collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, or in building a thesis that Putin holds compromising personal information about Trump. (He raises a valid point, both in the book and in conversation: Given what we already know about the president, how bad could the kompromat we don’t know possibly be?)
Instead, Miller builds an exhaustive and authoritative case, as suggested in his subtitle, that a Rubicon was crossed in American political history during that campaign, quite likely without anyone consciously intending to cross it. A mendacious demagogue with an incompetent, unprofessional campaign operation conquered a political party that had come untethered from its philosophical moorings, and then became both the target and the pawn of a highly capable foreign adversary who wanted to sow as much chaos as possible. We can all see the results around us in the ruined state of American political life and civic culture, and most of us would agree (Miller included) that this was the culmination of a long process for which Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin cannot be blamed…”

Islamophobia Under Trump: The New McCarthyism article from Truthout. –
It appears that Donald’s despotic delusions of grandeur are out of control:
“These days, our global political alliances seem to shift with remarkable rapidity, as if we were actually living in George Orwell’s 1984. Are we at war this month with Oceania? Or is it Eastasia? In that novel, the Party is able to erase history, sending old newspaper articles down the Ministry of Truth’s “memory hole” and so ensuring that, in the public mind, the enemy of the moment was always the enemy. Today, there is one constant, though. The Trump administration has made Muslims our enemy of the first order and, in its Islamophobia, is reinforced by an ugly resurgence of fascism in Germany, Italy, Hungary, and other European countries.
It’s hard today even to imagine that, in the late 1980s, the right-wing Christian Voice Magazine published a “candidate’s biblical scoreboard,” urging its readers (and potential voters) to rate their politicians by how “biblically” they cast their ballots in Congress. One key measure of this: Did that legislator support the anti-Communist Muslim jihadis in Afghanistan, a cause warmly supported by evangelist Pat Robertson in his 1988 presidential campaign? Now, attempting to appeal to twenty-first-century evangelicals, President Trump has announced that “Islam hates us.”
The kaleidoscope of geopolitics and Islamophobia is now spinning so fast that it should make our heads spin, too. At times, it seems as if Donald Trump is the anti-Ronald Reagan of the twenty-first century, idolizing former KGB operative Vladimir Putin, but seeing former US allies in the Muslim world like Pakistan as purveyors of “nothing but lies and deceit” — until, that is, with bewildering rapidity, he suddenly gives us the “good” (that is, oil-rich) Muslims again, willingly performing a sword dance with the Saudi royals, seemingly entirely comfortable with the scimitar of the Saracen.
